Hello everyone. I've been an # user and # enthusiast for nearly ten years. I don't work in tech so unfortunately I have no real life friends who share my interest in #.

I'm currently trying to get better at # and # as I transition away from using Excel/VBA for data analysis at work.

My other interests include # # # # #.


Maybe # arguments aren't enough to "win people over" to #. But that doesn't mean ethics should be omitted altogether in FOSS advocacy - like it has in most tech & FOSS bro corners of the world. For example, those cringeworthy "Linux challenges" rarely mention anything at all about _why_ FOSS OS's (sometimes) don't work as # dittos, i.e. it's not (necessarily) about badly developed FOSS systems, but rather the horrible ethics of # #.

Three months ago I joined this instance but forgot a proper # with hashtags and all that fancy stuff, so here it goes:
I am a computational linguist passionate about # and #. I like # in research and often talk too much about the importance of os and # in academia and education.
I like # l4d2, terraria and honestly too many games.
I study # and like to talk about sensible implementations of it and its future, also very into #

Hi, I'm Fionn! 👋 I work on fun tech projects, create electronic music garbage, and capture the odd photograph with my DSLR.

Professionally, I work as a technical writer — and beyond my 9 to 5 — enjoy contributing upstream to open source projects with code and docs.

I'll be posting bits on the above topics here, as well as personal stuff. Giz a follow ❤️

If you've been following the news lately you might have noticed that keeping your sensitive data private is becoming more important than ever before. The # community probably is your best bet to get trustworthy software. Weighing # vs. comfort however can be hard at times. # #

So e.g. if you were planning on using a period tracker #, would you be okay with that app requesting internet access?


Hey there, I'm not # , my other account is @carsten . I now try to separate my accounts for a better structure. My main account will still remain for my personal opinion on anything while I use this account for tooting around about #, #, #, #, #, #, #, # and so on.

If you like to discuss with me about anything, feel free to message and/or follow me. Toots here will be entirely in english.

BTW: I'm Carsten


What vector graphics programs do people use on iOS? My use case for work is: import tiff file —> trace important bone structures —> measure path lengths —> use data for analyses and paths for figures. Are there any # options? Or otherwise reasonably ethical or privacy-focused options?

Do you need a DNS server without censorship and for privacy?

@Digitalcourage runs a DNS server located in Germany that doesn't log normal user requests:

👉 46.182.19.48
👉 2a02: 2970: 1002: 0: 5054: 8aff: fe12: db49
👉 Encrypted requests DNS-over-TLS

We need # in @fsfe to move forward our work on # and freedom. Diversity is an indicator of and is indispensable for freedom. But how can we achieve that? We have to remove any and all barriers for speakers and activists to share their expertise and knowledge with the community. That means encouragement, financial support, childcare offers, a culture of being welcome. We have to bring voices not normally heard to our community. We need mentors and supporters, not heroes.


That's why I support @fsfe and not @fsf@status.fsf.org: We don't have any hero and I don't see that the FSFE movement is build in a way that it does need heroes. And that's a good think. # #

For all the new fedizens and all those of us that want fedi to be stronger in the face of the # onslaught I recommend (re)watching @darius talk at the # Conference in 2020.

https://conf.tube/w/oPQjje8j6qBFj7NSQ9xCKj

"Let's play and win our own game!"

And it has broader applicability. I responded to @csddumi on the idea to "Unionize Free Software" where these strategies can be very well applied to # movement as a whole.

Anoter # just happened: 7 updated apps in my repo, and 45 updated plus 4 new apps at @fdroidorg

* Mule on Android: eDonkey2000 client
* HOPE 2022: app for the HOPE conference 2022
* Geoperion: Geological games built using web

# - Hello. I just moved over from mastodon.social. I first installed Linux in 1999 (I think) so this seems like a good home for me :) By day I am a sales engineer for complex websites, mostly Drupal and WordPress. When not working I prefer to be in the woods in my standup teardrop camper. I'm also likely to post about #, #, #, #, #, # #


I should have started with this:

I am working on a search engine #. Unlike a todoapp, it requires more hardware, having an idea of how much people are willing to spend upfront or by subscription renting a server will help me figure what kind of hardware I need to acquire to be able to test the algorithms.

Thanks for you cooperation! (and please boost!)

se vi interessa è uscito il report degli audit formali di session , fatti da quarkslab:

https://blog.quarkslab.com/audit-of-session-secure-messaging-application.html

se non ho capito male però solo durante l'ultimo audit del client desktop era già stato implementato il nuovo protocollo

Dicono che alcune vulnerabilità (in teoria quelle più rilevanti), riscontrate negli audit sono già state fixate:

If you're into music and audio production with Linux and/or open-source software, you could enjoy joining my community chat!
A lot of fantastic people there, sharing ideas, software and helping each other solve issues.

The community chat is bridged between a self-hosted, open-source Rocket.Chat instance at https://chat.unfa.xyz an Discord (proprietary, centralized): https://discord.gg/ShHtbEr

I'll see you around :)

Results on the # # are in..

Result surprised me. I thought the way I formulated that the second option "FOSS projects go as they go" would be most voted on.

This because so many # projects start small, as hobby or side projects where arguably strategy isn't all that important.

There's a point when a project grows, where strategy starts to weigh in. Likely there's a bunch of characteristics and metrics that determine this.

Popularity, demand, complexity, contributors, etc.


# are so stressful, but let me try anyways! I am a # # person in the US who has recently gotten into learning more about # # and just tech in general. I am a # # and of course spend lots of time watching # . Some of my other hobbies include # fanfiction and staring into space while listening to # . I also am looking into being # # so any enviro too.
Please friend me if I share any interest, or in general.

a # rule of thumb: a simple, elegant program that does X (possibly "straight from your command line") will not support RTL languages correctly.

It's not the developers fault. RTL on computers that are built from a low level for LTR, tends to be a bit of a patchwork thing, far from being elegant or simple, and requires a subtle understanding of problems not obvious if you haven't juggled mixed RTL & LTR texts for years.

Our deepest # fears have come true. We're experiencing major incompatibility issues between @libreoffice and Microsoft Office. Due to our existing documents we chose to keep using .docx. Users are complaining about formatting issues, tables not functioning anymore and documents becoming completely unworkable. I've verified a few examples, it's bad :(

Not sure how to fix this. I'm experimenting now with converting documents to .doc standards. We simply can't work with the opensource format.


# Hi! I have been paying my bills programming in PHP for over a decade with WP being what got me into the language originally.

I have a number of personal projects that I work on with the PHP Plates based static site generator Tapestry https://github.com/tapestry-cloud/tapestry being the one that consumes the most spare time.

I thoroughly enjoy working with, and helping others and would very much like to be more involved in the PHP community at large.

Hi, I'm pauli, a # # player and musicologist from east germany. I'm interrested in many different styles of #. Right now I play mostly punk and jazz grind (or something like that).
I have my main account on cybre.space but wanted to explore sonomu.club and it's people. So this will be the place to post my music stuff I guess. :)

I try to use as much # as possible and care a lot about antifascism, queer feminism and anarchist politics.
Feel free to follow.

Ich benutze gerne # and #. Ich hätte gerne # für Jeden besonders für # and # 😘

That could indeed be a great way to strengthen # (in the either or the other way):

- Choose a tool to inspect, e.g. "Libreoffice".
- Find the fittest (maybe commercial) competitor; e.g. "MS Office".
- Find a "power user" for both.
- Define a catalog of interesting&relevant tasks.
- Let the chosen users compete in solving that tasks in a public session.

If that works fine, you have a nice video clip to show. If not, you have a lot of good feedback about stuff to fix.

What do you think?

I'm still trying to understand, if my posts on scholar.social are too similar to how I use Twitter. I genuinely find it hard to tell. ❤️💔

I'm trying to make # my scholarly and personal home.

These last few months I have decided that my interactions on Twitter, LinkedIn, GitHub would be focused primarily on proselytizing for (open) projects that matter to me. And for work since I make a living in broad # - # - # space. So far so good?
